Monday, March 11, 2013's March?

Some days are just boring...
Some days are way too full...

It all becomes such a blur.
Kind of like when I think about the fact that it's already March and it will soon be summer.

I have a love/hate relationship with summer.
I love/hate having my kids home for the entire summer.
I love/hate going to the pool everyday.
I love/hate hearing my kiddos say "I'm so bored!"
I love/hate the heat.
I love/hate hearing all the locusts.
I love/hate all the time to do whatever we want.
But whatever I do, summer will be here in no time.
I think I am going to make this one the best EVER!
That's my goal.  If I spend a little more time planning it now...all will be good.

There will be lots of treks to the snow cone place right around the corner...

And since my kids absolutely love trees, lots of this doubt!

Hanging out with friends...

And I know we will spend lots of time here...

We already have some plans set.  Z starts baseball here very soon.  L and Z will be on swim team which will keep up busy daily.  K is planning on doing Summer School.  They offer a really great thing for highschoolers in Webster Groves.  They let you take classes that you would normally take during the school year, during summer so you can get them out of the way.  It's not remedial at all.  K will be taking PE and also Desktop Publishing.  Very cool!  I would have loved getting PE done during dressing-down into gross clothes during the school day!!
So those things will keep us busy quite busy...I will just make my plans work around that. 

Other than that, we have our annual trek to Kansas to see my bestie and her fam-damily, Colorado to visit my sister and all the friends that we left when we moved and to Wyoming to visit my parents.

It'll be here before we know it!

Doing some catch up on your blog. I understand the challenges a long summer can bring; but your plans sound full enough that you'll be so busy it'll be over quickly - and all will have had a good time. Except Carl! Hope he can enjoy a little down time too.
